It is a day's work to make every man you meet glad he met you
KELOWNA, August 15.—Duchess
sblpmetits haive now started
In good earnest. The committee ot direction has set -prices or
$1.28 tor crates and $1.60 for wrapped. -Conditions seem to ibe favorable tor a tree movement.
Much Interest has been takin In
the Wealthies and their relation lo
the Ouches. The committed will
not permit the Wealthies to movt*
untll they are fully matured, according to the reports of the truit inspectors, nor until the Duchess deal is
fairly out of the way. This will permit of the Wealthies attaining a desirable degree of maturity and attractiveness, thus helping their said
on the prlrle market.
Later, the committee, will endeavor
to see that the Mcintosh crop does
not move until well colored. Thctre
seems no reason why iMacs should
be rushed on to the market, consid
tiring their excellent keeping qualities (Pid the fact that, even if they
have to be picked, the grower can do
his sharei ln holding back his fruit in
the orchard without congesting the
packing houses.
■ On the whole, with the cooperation
of all concerned, and with fully receptive markets, It looks as If the
forthcoming apple season should be
more stpisfactory than soma that
have preceded lt
a. Tomatoes
The committee has had something
to say about seml-ripcl tomatoes recently, and In that connection has received a statement from a jobber on
the prairlee which rei*ds as follows:
"In the past there has been a tendency on. the part of British Columbia shippers to ship a lot of Junk ln
•thfdr -tomato crates. Possibly they
cannot be blamed, considering the
low prices tbat rule at the penfk of
the season. This class of stock just
tctads to demoralize the market and
neither the jobber, retailer nor consumer. Is satisfied, no matter how
cheap It is. /There is nothing more
aggravating to a jobber than to get
tomatoes dead green and soft ripe in
the same cratta. We would mention
the very unfair pratice of the shippers ot including absolutely dead
greth tomatoes ln their crates alt the
first of the season when the price ls
•at the very peak. Jobbers simply
cannot send them out to their cus
tomers in that condition. They therefore have to repack them and set
aside the greens to ripen, tfnd before
they aro ripe the price Is down 50 per
cant We sold one customer an express shipment of about eighty cases
when the price was very high.The
writer was present when they were
repacking them and they were at
least one-third unsaleable! and will
be unsaleable for at least another
weak. This jobber had tomatoes
rolling by freight and the only reason
that he bought by express web that
he needed them for immediate sale,
The jobber feels, and we agree with
him, that hei Is entitled to some kind
of protection on a deal like this."
1 Celery
The aame jobber haa the following
to say on celery, though it ought to
bq remarked thajt, so far as the Oka
nagan valley is concerned, the celery
movement appears to have been free
and satisfactory:
"This ls a commodity on which
thel consumption a this time ot year
Is greatly overestimated. Yesterday
the wri er made! the rounds of every
fruit jobber in Calgary and with only
one exception we saw celery unfit for
aale In every jobbing housu; this ln
the face of the fact tbat they were
baying only a few crates at a time.
We- were just In time to see one jobbing house dumping twenty-two 50
lb. boxes of washed celery that they
had brought in by eixpress."

Cantaloupes are just beginning.
The supply ls not so lapge as last

In Abyssinia
CALGARY, August 16.—Fair warm
wchther has prevailed , during
thu week. Harvest is expected
to commence about August 20 at
many 'points. Field crops are in
splendid shape. Busine ss is good,
but profits small due to kecta competition.
Considerable Interest has centered
in the royal visit to Calgary, afnd today Premier Baldwin of Great Brltl
ain will deliver an addresB.
There is considerate volume of
fruit and vegetables moving from the
Okana|gan valley. A prlcots are
about over. This crop was marketed in a satisfactory manner. -Supplies were rather light, with size and
quality above the avereige. Cherries
are also on the decline) ln volume and
increasing in price.
■ The public have been satiated with
all kinds of berries. This has been
a b*s)d seaso for berries, as the condl-
tlonof arrival has been below the average standard and much loss has resulted to shippers, wholesalers and
retailers. Bome ot the trouble'could
be improved by better marketing
methods, but most of it was beyond
British Columbia field tomatoes are
crowding all other kinds off tha market A more careful pack is demand
ed by the trade. 'Local hothoouse
stuff is retailing, at a| very low figure.
Imported plums are slightly on the
decline. Yellow Transparent and
Duchess apples from British Columbia ara about the only applesoffered.
Vegetables are still in good demand,
especially such commodities as are
not grown In volume; locally.
British Columbia potatoes are having a heavy movement. The coast
quotations are still below the interior
but the volume from the coast has
fallen off, due to the low lprce

A new era in children's aid work
ln British Columbia is being started,
with Miss Laura Holland as organizer and superintendent of tthe home
ln Vancouver,
An appeal is being Bent out for
help to wipe ou,t the deficit of the
socie-ty, to allow- the new work to be
commenced on a satlsf&lctory basis.
As there are little ones in our home
from nearly ervery part of British
Columbia and, as the need ls great,
the. help of everyone; is asked to save
the abused and neglected llttlo ones
((nd give them at least a fighting
chance in this lifej.
You are asked to be generous to
this cause, and help the society to
continue to carry on its great work.
Every dollar sent in goes to help Bave
a little child. Send in your donations to the Children's Aid Society,
2613 Wall Street, Vancouver, B. C,
tint! on behalf of the child who will
receive help through that donation,
I thank you.—Mrs. S. H. Ramage,

"■Having any trouble these days
meeting your expenses,  BUI?"
".Meeting 'em? Why, man I run
into 'em every time I move."
THE status of Abyssinia, sup
posedly settled a score of years
ago when England, France and
Italy guaranteed her independence,
is up for consideration again among
the guarantors. The, country is practically the last bit of Africa unappropriated by Europei)n powers, and
some of the powers are wondering
whether it would not be better after
all to bring western civilization—vnd
control—into this corner of the Dark
Although the people of Abyssinia
may be immersctd in medievalism,
their rulers have managed to keep
pretty well up with the timee.
One of the most famous women
rulers in the history of the world sat
upon the throne of Abyssinia nearly
3000 years ago, but the present empress of that country, a daughter of
Menelik il, is not ejllowe'd to govern
her people. Waizeru Zauditu ls
merely the nominal head of this coun
try, which was noted as thel home of
the Queen of Sheba in the days of
Solomon. The actual ruler of Abyssinia, or Ethiopia, as its natives prefer to call it, is Has Taffari, thei regent and heir apparent, son of Ras
Makonnen of Harc|r, and cousin to
the empress.
The United Staes has no resident
agent in Ethiopia. Although the
ruler is very favorably disposed toward Americans, and is willing to extend unusual courtesies to them, he
first makes very sure of their mission
t|nd satisfies himself that they are
as they represent themselves. A
would-be traveler may have to cool
his heels in Addis Abada, the capital,
for many weeks beiore he receives
.permission to go about the country.
Addis Abada ls a straggling city.
Its principal stratus are "paved"
with round'waloiworii bolwders from
G to 100 inches in diameter, and the
two main suburban roads along the
bale of the hill are sun'ucod wilh a
thlnmacadam. Wheeled trofllc is un
uncommon, most residents going
from place to place on horseback. It
is a jjourney of an hour and noli
from the American mission, on one
edge/ of town, to the British legation,
on the other.
A fairly good road runs from the
residence of Ras Taffari to that of
the empress, and several streets are
passable to the haif-dozen automo,
biles, which are limited to the city,
and to one road which is improved
for some distance! westward. Over the
country as a whole there is no possibility of wheeled traffic of any kind.
The ride in an automobile in the
ciety ls more or less of aft adventure.
The streets are always filled with
pedestrians, each one of whom is obsessed with the idea that he must
discover how log he can keep ln front
of the machine by running. The native pack ponies coming to market
are unused to ajutos and gallop wildly along the road, causing their
packs, when loaded with hay, to slip
sldewlse and finally benciith them.
The store buildings are one or two-
storey adobe and stono structures
covered with galvanized Iron rootling
The stocks of goods are small i.uul
Inferior, although at ono store, run
by a Parsee, a considerable assort?
ment of articled Is for sale. Beside
the stores, there are the thousands
of gra|ss-roofed huts scotteretl about
thei hills, where the native papula
tion lives.
There is no electricity, no gas, no
water or sewerage system, but ther
is a "movie."
All the town goes to the station in
the etvening when the train arrives
from Jibuti. The caoches of the train
are filled with all kinds stnd classes
of people, who arrive weary and
It is only 500 miles from the coast,
but tho toy train has labored heavily
for three days to accomplish tlr
journey. It runs only in daylight
hours—a) practice due in part to danger from, the Somalia and Danakils,
nomadic peoples of the semi-desert,
for it would not be difflcalt to removo
a rail, plunder the wreck and disappear in tlm darkness
When traveling ln Abyssinia thorn
nire a few details of organization to
which particular attention shold bc
paid. Tha first ls to be well supplies) with interpreters. There should
be at least two, preferably man who
do not like each other f,or there are
selveral hazards in having but one In
terpreter. In the flrst plt|ce, you are
at bis mercy, and are told only the
the things that he- is willing that you
should know. If he wishes to go a
certain route, he tells you that there
is but one road. Again, he, may fall
ill a-ad thus leave you without means
A second end to be secured in organization ls discussion ln camp.
Therei can be no concerted action
and little indlvldualsabotage in the
way of. delaying the marches, li
there are factions among tho servants. To to this end it is wise to hire
both Mohammedans and Christians.
The Mohammedans prove especially
useful ln tying up the Christians
wben the latter get drunk.
The platelau of western Aysslnla
slopes upwards from the low plains
of the Sudan. It rises gradually
higher iftti higher until the extreme,
eastern edge ls reached.
Here it breaks abruptly into a
great escarpment,, the first drop being one of 5000 feet. Its surface is
cut by streams, tbe larger of which
have eroded canyons of greejt extent
and of forbidding depths. The aspect
of the country is extremely mountainous, but for the most part this
appearance; is due to erosion   ,
The canyons Interpose great dim-
ties in traveling. They necessitate
either very hazardous descents and
climbs or time-taking detours ot
many miles. The trails, as far
possible, follow the'high ground.
Seventy-five miles north-east of
Addis Abadai (about six days by
horseback) lie's Ankober, situated on
a peak in the breaks of the eaatern
escarpment.. Tbe traveler sights it
hours before his arrival, but he is
compelled to drop down thousands
of feet to cross a, stream and then
recllmb to an almost equal elevation.
The sides of the canyon are very precipitous and, although the trail zigzags back afnd forth, it Ib extremely
Ankober was founded by Amada
Yesus about 1760. -It consists of a
needle-like peak, surmounted by a

There are; also three of four guardhouses on the path which leads to the

tared huts and on either side is n
The view from the peak at the corner of the plateau is magnificent. To

FRENCH    naval     engineer
named Jean-Paul Michel hae
Invented an ocean liner that
isnhalf ship and half airplane.
The new ocean vehicle, which li
called tbe Greyhound of the Seat is
guaranteed to have a speed of SO
miles an hour and to cross the Atlantic In 60 hours.
It is unlike any other boat or airplane that ha|s ever been built, although an Italian company at Genoa
is now constructing a "mystery boat"
along somewhat the same lines.
The Greyhound of tbe Sea) will be
driven by two big ah- propellers at
the bow, just like an airplane or seaplane-, and instead of riding through
the water like a ship it will glide
over the top of the waves. There)
will, be an air rudder and also a water
rudder, but there are no underwater
propellers. The ship has large skids
underneath to help it slide along the
"I know exactly how It will perform when it ls finished," Michel,
who Is a graduate ot the leading
French technical school, explained
the other day.
"I have been testing out different
models for almost fifteen years, afnd
I finally found one that fulfilled all
my expectations.
"Tho first big experimental ship,
which is about 1500 feet long and has
accommodations for thirty passengers, is now being built in my ship-
yr.|s'd near Toulon. It is more than
balf finished, and the first thing I am
going to do when lt is all ready is to
take a trip to New York. I am going to make it ln two days and three
"I think my invention will upset all
existing ideas qbout navigation, and
particularly tba] propulsion of warships."
But the strangest thing about the
Greyhound of the Sea is that it will
carry practically no fuel aside from
a little oil for ah emergency motor.
Michel also has invented a process
of extracting sodium from the' sea,
transforming it on board ship into a
gas and using this gas to run a spe-
cir,(l motor ha has adapted to lt, but
the details of the invention are carefully guarded.
The most important room on board
his new ship will be a big laboratory
near the stern, where a chemist will
be constantly on duty to supervise
tbis chemical process.
He claims there is such an abundance of this fuel in thel ocean that
he could travel on it as long as his
ship held together, but just as a precaution he fs going to install a littles
Diesel motor and take on a) little fuel
oil, this precaution being omitted
aftre the new system has been fully
tried out.
In appearance the Greyhound of
the Sea will look something like a
submarine, wltb horizontal fins at the
sides, riding the surf; pe of the water.
The top will be entirely enclosed
except for a promenade deck near
the stern. The ship will be some-
less, of course. It will not be able
to fly, although at high speed it would
simply ski macross the whftecaps.
It Ib being built of very thin steel,
in order to be as light as posslgle,
and lt is difficult to foresee how it
will behave in a hee-vy sea.
The high speed will be attained by
reducing friction with the sea rather
than powerful motors.

CHEMICAL alarm clocks to spouse sleepy potatoes and
other plant cuttings from their lethargy and start
them into growth wcleks before their usual time, were
described to the National Academy of Science recently
by Dr. Frank E. Denny, of thc> Boyce Thompson institute.
Yonkers, N. Y. "The potato tubers when freshly harvested fjre dormant, and will not sprout if planted at once
under growig conditions, the rest period lasting ffpm one
to fo.ir •O-onthB in different varieties of potatoes," said
Doctor Denny. "This period of inactivity may be shortened by treating the tubers with various chemicals. .The
gain in time of sprouting is about two to six weeksL depending on the! variety of the potato afid the stage of dormancy at the time the treatment is applied. Twigs of
apple, grape, lilac also have this dormant -[kiriod in autumn, (.(nd the buds of these species can ibe forced into
ehrly growth by treatment with oertain of these chemicals, the gain in time of budding or blooming ranging from one to nine weeks." The chemicals used by
Dr. Demny include thiocyantes, thiourea and ethylene

In Charles Hanson Towne's recent
interesting autobiography, "Adventures in Editing," he gives an amusing example of what mischief the
typesetter can play with serious
poetry, by even the slightest of typographical errors The lighthouse—,
that noble beacon of cheer and hope,
stetjdfaBt amid the tumult of tbe elements—has long been a favorite object with poets addictdd to simile. In
her turn, Ella Wheeler Wilcox employed it in a poem sent to a maga-
zlnei edited by Mr. Towne.
"She had opened a certain set of
verses," he relates, "with onei of her
most cosmic lines, typlcif of her
style, 'My soul is a lighthouse keeper,' but the printer In setting it up
caused it to read, 'My soul is a light
housekeeper.' Mrs. Wilcox never
forgave that lynotyper, and neither
did I;and her followers must have
thought their beloved leader had
gone out of her mind.",.
Housekeeping, even of tbe light variety, is a-n art ln which any woman
may take pride ln being proficient;

ous parts of the vast area in which these men work, nit
intervals of three years, when problems relating to ocean
depths and currents, volcanoes and earthquakes, the
plc-nt and animal life of the sea and its shores, and all
other scientific questions concerning the Pacific will be
dlscuBse-d. Among the nations now interested are Canada, the United States, Japan, China, Russia, Australia
New Zealand and the Dutch East Indies. The first stept
toward the dstablishroent of the new organization were
taken at the reoent meeting of the Pan-Paciflc Science

EVEN though the eleven western states possess most
of the American -potential water power, during 1926
st(»|-n plants to generate electricity were erected ln
those states in nearly the same proportion as hydro
electric plants, says the New England Utility News.
Hydro-tflectric plant capacity was increased by about
155,000 horsepower antl that of fuel-burning plants' by
1-15,000 horsepower.
SIXTY* years ago the Victoria cross was presented for
tho first time. This order of merit was instituted amd
conl'erretl for the purpose of recognizing acts of signal
bravery to the British queen (or king) and country
soldiers or sailors engaged in warfare. It originated
in connection with the Crimean war, and the first crosses
were made from the Russian cannon captured at Sebas-
topol. The most coveted of all British decora|tions is
open to all officers and man of the regular, auxiliary and
reserve forces of the empire.
Poems From EasternLands
Our chariots were well built and firm,
Well-matched our stefeds, and fleet and strong,
Four, sleek and large, eaph chariot drew,
And eastward thus we drove along.
Our hunting cars were) light and good,
Each with its team of noble steeds.
Still further east we took the way
To Foo-mere's grassy plains that leads.
Loud-voiced, the masters of the chase
Arranged the huntsmen, high and low.
While banners streajmed, and' ox-tails flew,
We sought the prey on distant Gaou
Each with full team, the princes cam<e,
A lengthened train in bright array.
In gold-wrought slippers, knee-caps rial,
They looked as on an ajudience day.
Each right thumb wore the metal guard;
On the left arm Its shield was bound.
In unison the arrows flew;
The game lay piled upon the ground.
The leaders' of the tawny teia(ms
Sped on their caourse, direct and true.
The drivers perfect skill displayed;
Like blow well aimed each arrow flew.
Neighing and pleased, the steeds returned;
The bannered lines back slowly catae.
No jostling rude disgraced the crowd;
The king declined large share of game.
So did this famous hunt proceed!
So freel it was from clamorous sound 1
Well does our king become his place,
' And high the deeds hiB reign have crowned!
SPEECH requires a small amount of energy, according
to telephone engineiers,-who explain that if a million
persona were to talk steadily, and this energy of their
voices were to be converted into heat, they would helve
to talk for an hour and a half to produce sufficient heat
to make a cupful of tea. One acoustic export haa divided
the English speech into :'(i letter sounds, and he found

Kings arel expected to be good linguists. Albert of Belgium speaks
several languages, even Including
some good idioma-tic American, picked up during his early unofficial visit
to the United States. But he does
not speak Swedish, and during his
visit to Stockmolm for the wedding
of his son, Prince Leopold, to Princess Astrid of Sweden, he got into
difficulties, when he went out for a
walk, unattended, ununlformed, wearing a comfortable felt hat, earlyy in
the morning.
"On his return," sap's Het Laatste
Nleuws of Brussels, "wheta he was
about to enter the palace, tbe sentinels did not recognizci him and refused to let him go ln.
"Je suis le roi des   Beiges,"   Baid
the king ln French, but the soldiers
did   not   understand him.   Then he
tried in English:
"I am the king of Belgium."
But, as the sentinetls still did not
understnd, he finally said in German;
"Ich bin der konlg von Gelgien!"
But the soldieirs only replied :
•'Nobody is allowed to enter."
The king wafe in despair    Then he
remetmbered a few words of Swedish
and endeavored to make the soldiers
understand    in their   own language!
that he was king of Belgium.
"Rung Belg! Rung Belg!" he repeated, but the soldiers understood
still less.
"I believe he is. mad," said one of
them. "You go and waj-n the policci
I will watch him- in the meantime."
One of the soldiers went to the
sergeant-major, who came at once,
and with the greatest astonishment
saw it was the king of Belgium. At
last the door weJb open to him. -He
walked laughing into the palace and
told his adventure. King Gustaf of
Sweden was much amused and said:
"You see! That comes from wearing a hat with a broad brlm.__We
very nearly never saw either the" hat
or the king again!"
There are many stories—somo apocryphal no doubt, but all amusing—
about the great showman, P. T. Barnum. For one of them Moreton
Frewen, the English economist, ls responsible.
(Once, he says, on arriving in New
York he found the city placarded by
Barnum with huge posters announcing that the last of the buffalo herds,
brought from Montana, would be on
view ln his New Jevrsey show on a
certain day. At that time the only
wary of getting from New York to
New Jersey was by taking one! of a
fleet ot nuge steam ferries that plied
to and fro across the .Hudson river.
The day arrived, and such a vast
throng crowded tbe ferries tha*., although the fare—normally twenty-
five cants— was doubled, there was
still barely standing room on the
boats. When the great show was
crammed to its utmost capacity, Bar-
num himself announced through a
megaphonq that the buffalo herd had
stampeded when only a few miles
awafy at Trenton, but that every disappointed sightsqer there would receive back his entrance fee as he
went out through the turnstiles. He
hoped that a free view of his beasts
and of the tattooed lady would compensate! them for their disarppoint-
A little later it leaked out that the
shrewd showman had hired all the
ferry boats that day between New
York and Jersey City and hojtl made
a small fortune out of the credulous
New York crowd.

Jefct of preparing the leaf for consumption has become a fine art and
a ceremony, but the full delicious refreshment and healthful stimulation
may bt) extracted from the fragrant
tea-leaves lf the following rules are
followed eyactly:
Rule No. 1—The best quality of
taa must be used. The tea also must
be fresh, to yield the full goodness.
Rule No. 2—The quality of the water used will affect tho bavor of the
beverage In the cup. Draw fresh
cold water and bring it to a hard bubbly boll. Never use. water that has
been boiled before. Sometimes chlo-
Ine put in water to purify it will completely cbange the flavor of the tea.
The water is to blame, however, and
not the tea.
•Rule No. 3—It is proper that only
a crockery or china teapot be, used,
never one of metal or any other substance if the pure and delicious flavor of thel tea is to be drawn out. Tea
likewise should, never be enclosed in

while it is warm, place in it one level
teaspoonful of tea for each cup required.
Rule No. 5—Now pour the boiling
water on the leaves. Allow to steep

Stir Just sufficiently to diffuse the
full strength of thetea. Then pour
tbe lipuid off the leaves lntoanother
heated vessel, unless served immediately. If poured off ln this way, tbe

UNDOUBTEDLY the finest train
_ ever assembled for any occasion bore their Royal Highnesses
The Prince of Wales, Prince George,
and Premier and Mrs. Baldwin
from the Windsor Street Station in
Montreal recently on their journey
westward across the Continent.
From their observation platform at
the rear of the "Mount Stephen,"
where the Prince of Wales will
smile his greetings to thousands of
Canadians across the Dominion, In
the private cars placed at the disposal of Premier Baldwin, the train
resembled more in appointment the
most exclusive club, finishings and
appointments beinir in every way
fitting for such distinguisheii
guests  of  Canada.
Days before tho Empress nf
Australia, bearing tho Princes and
Premier to Quebec, steamed up the
grey -waters of the St. Lawrence,
the yards of the Canadian Pacific
were a scene pf more than usual
activity, interest centering around
the Royal train being assembled
there. The finest private cars of
the Company were assembled, the
Mount Stephen and the Strathcona
for Their Royal Highnesses, and
the Wentworth and the Killamey
for Premier and Mrs. Baldwin. The
Rupertslund and the Van Home
were placed at thc disposal of Premier King nnd members of the
Princes' party. Thc Mount Stephen used hy the Princes as
their dining room anel also as
a general lounge car is finished in walnut, the glassware
and silver fittings being set off by
blue toned rugs, hangings and upholstery. The Stiiithcona, containing  the  sleeping  quarters  of  thc
Prince of Wales and Prince George,
is also finished in dark walnut.
The coverings of the beds are all
in royal blue while those of their
aides-de-camp are in water Ihluo
of a shaded Bilk. Premier Baldwin's private cars, located near tho
front of the train, are furnished in
the same manner, supplied with
radio and Oitthophonic. The Wentworth is finished in mahogany
while the Killamey is in walnut.
In addition to the private cars are
a number of compartment Glen cars
for the use of officials and others
who will accompany tho train
across the continent. The most
powerful locomotives in use on tbe
C.P.R. will haul the special train
during the major part of the journey across Canada to thc Rockies,
this being the G-3-d type of the
2300 class.
